Creating a realistic experience for your visitors is a primary concern when developing or modifying an exhibit. Dolphins, penguins and other shore dwelling life require wave action to simulate their natural environment. The correct wave motion can improve water quality and increase the efficiency of the exhibit’s life systems.
